These are great examples. Another popular use for Skype in the classroom is Mystery Skype. Students use their map skills and communication skills to try to find the mystery location of the other classroom. We have mystery skyped 14 times this year. Some highlights include the UK, S. Africa, Ausralia, and New Zealand. http://mrsmorgansstars.edublogs.org/skype-eti...

We have over 300 authors our site -- http://SkypeAnAuthor.Wetpaint.com -- We've been growing over the years and continue to add new authors. This is a labor of love that has grown into a great resource for teachers and librarians.

Technology is bringing experiences to students that they wouldn't otherwise have. What a great use of skype. It's a wonderful tool. There are so many applications.
I use it to coach my clients in public speaking.

Yeah but,
Those kids could accidentlly skype a gay person, or a liberal. Or worse yet the president himself.
The republicans will bring this up and find a way to illegalize skype in the classroom becuase education breeds knowledge. Something the republicans don't have any patience for.
